Per my previous post, I made the first move with regard to RSVPing to the other party. We decided that we are going to go. I politely let the other mother know that there was a chance that we would be late due to the clean-up of our party, but that we were going to attend. She clearly was waiting for my response, because within a half hour after my email was sent, she responded that she would attend our party, as well. I’m planning to send CheezWaster home with my parents while we clean-up. This way, he will have an appropriate amount of time to rest and recoup for the next party. I’m hoping this will be a fun day of birthday celebrations!
